School Tours

Nevada Museum of Art School Tours take a student-centered approach. Through inquiry-based, standards-aligned, grade-specific content, K-12 students are encouraged to explore interdisciplinary STEAM-based arts integration topics while making meaningful connections with art from the Museum’s collections and exhibitions. Tours are aligned with National Core Arts Standards and Nevada Academic Content Standards.

In-person and virtual tours are available in Spanish upon request.
